Ballooning Thanks

When I lived in Edmonton, during the summer, you'd see the hot air balloons rising from the river valley.  I don't know if I'd ever have the guts to ride in one - but there is something so peaceful about them floating through the air.

This isn't one of the new sets I got yesterday, but it is new to me and it worked best with the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches today.  I did use one of the "Itty Bitty Banners" with its matching Framelit.

I took the colours from the inspiration photo at Stampin' Royalty.  The photo was of  bright beautiful flowers, which I've transferred to the balloons.  I've used a piece of upcoming DSP called "Comfort Cafe" and the Daffodil Delight Stitched Grosgrain ribbon is new too.

I do like when I have my morning off from school - I can get the challenge of the day done, and putter around a bit with Stampin' stuff.  When I get home this afternoon I'm going to have to start getting to work on some masks for my concert.  Busy, busy, busy.

Hope you have a marvellous day - thanks for visiting.
